Former Crawley Town, Leeds United and Rotherham manager Steve Evans thought that Newcastle United would not only win promotion from the Championship this season but also be the Champions, much like the last time we were in England’s second division back in 2009-2010.
And after that terrible shock of two successive league defeats at Fulham and at home to Huddersfield Town to start off our season, in the last six games in all competitions we have won all six, scored 17 goals and conceded only one.
Steve Evans – lauds Newcastle’s awesome display
We have five successive clean sheets too.
Steve Evans spoke to the Football League paper after it was some performance from an all-out attacking Newcastle team in London last night:
“At the start of the season, I said Newcastle United would be champions and, despite a poor start, they are now up and running in the Championship.”
“Those magnificent fans deserve nothing other than the Premier League – they will be back!”
“Aston Villa have also added some real quality players in the past few weeks.”
“It is certainly going to be top six for them.”
Newcastle set the standard last night in London and nothing less will be good enough.
As Rafa Benitez has said many times, the team has to concentrate on every single game with the aim of winning it.
Coming up are two games at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers and our lads must concentrate on those games and go all out for two wins.
There must be no let up.
